Elaborating on the mentioned objectives in a meeting of the IMIDRO’s Indigenizing Committee in early February 2020, Khodadad Gharibpour said achieving the technology required in designing and establishing the production lines with the aim of boosting productivity, reducing foreign currency expenditures, and promoting employment are the major aims pursued by the “domestic production” strategy.

Increasing the profit-making status of the enterprises through reducing the production costs is another major objective of the domestic production approach, he added, and said that benefitting from domestic technical knowledge and creating a platform on which the enterprises active in the mining sector can exchange their experiences in this due is the other important target.

Supporting innovative ideas, creating opportunities for domestic manufacturers, stable supply of the mining industries’ requirements, and reducing the existing risks were named as the other targets by the official.

Stressing his organization’s facilitating approach, Gharibpour said, “Our mission is to expand mining exploration through more cooperation with the private sector, supporting the knowledge-based companies, and achieving the technical knowledge for completing the production chain.”
